BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A southern Kentucky doctor has been arrested in Tennessee after being indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of unlawful distribution of controlled substances, health care fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.

A statement from the Bowling Green Warren County Drug Task Force says 63-year-old Dr. Fred Gott was taken into custody Tuesday morning in Nashville, Tennessee.

The statement says the charges stem from a lengthy investigation that included the seizure of medical records from Gott’s office in Bowling Green, Kentucky, in 2013.

According to the Bowling Green Daily News (, Gott practiced medicine in the community for 30 years, focusing on cardiology and pain management.

Records from the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure show his medical license was restricted last year.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
